A huge thanks to my dive partner Dr. Jamie Seymour, a world renouned venom biologist at James Cook University. He’s a top notch guy who helped me open my eyes to the wonders of the ocean.

Also, the beautiful footage was taken by “Shark Dude” Richard Fitzpatrick. Richard is the man. more on him later.

Music “Manta” by A Shell In The Pit.
You know Gordon’s music by now. It’s all good.


Clownfish are “sequential hermaphrodites” which move from male to female (Protandry). Most sequential hermaphrodites move from female to male (Protogyny).
